CQUniversity works collaboratively with external sponsoring organisations, governments and agencies to provide funding arrangements for their nominees to undertake studies at CQUniversity.

CQUniversity International provides a dedicated point of contact for sponsors and acts as a liaison between the University, the student and the sponsor.

Frequently Asked Questions

To be registered as a sponsored student at CQUniversity, you (or your sponsor) must provide a valid Financial Guarantee letter when you accept your Offer of Admission. Once the Financial Guarantee is approved, a Confirmation of Enrolment will be issued.

CQUniversity requires a separate Financial Guarantee letter from the sponsor for each sponsored student. The Financial Guarantee letter must be received on official letterhead of the sponsor organisation and include the following details:

  • Full name of student.
  • Name of course student is undertaking.
  • Duration of sponsorship.
  • OSHC requirements (single, couple, family).
  • Advice regarding level of tuition fees covered by sponsorship (our preference is a reference to full tuition fee coverage for the period of sponsorship rather than reference to a fixed dollar amount, however, if the sponsorship is capped at an annual amount this must be expressed in Australian dollars).
  • 'CQUniversity' stated as the institution at which the sponsored study will be undertaken.
  • Invoice contact details (name, position, title, email, mailing address, telephone).
  • Academic reporting contact details (name, position, title, email, mailing address, telephone).
  • Date, signature and printed name of the authorising individual from the sponsor.

Please accept your offer in iStart, our online admissions system, and forward a copy of your Financial Guarantee Letter via email or iStart to international-admissions@cqu.edu.au.

CQUniversity will assist you further with the Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
